What fun! Kids and adults alike will love the pillows you make with this easy-to-sew pattern. Make a pillow bouquet, size the pattern down for a pincushion or up for a marvelous gift. (Trace your child's hands to embroider on the star's points for an excellent birthday/Father's Day/Grandparent's Day gift. An example of a simple version of that can be seen here.) Once you start making them it's hard to stop ... use all the fabric scraps you have sitting around (because you can't just throw away perfectly good organic fabric!) to make throw pillows, bedside pillows, giveaway pillows, travel pillows (we've been told they're the perfect size to cradle your head when leaned up against an airplane or car window), ... so very many pillows!

The manufacturer recommends 1/3 yard of light-to-midweight cotton for the front and back, and 1/4 yard of light-to-midweight coordinating cotton for sides and buttons, two 1 1/8" fabric self-cover buttons, and approximately 6 ounces of soft stuffing. We've found that heavier fabrics work well too, though they're harder to use for self-cover buttons; some of our favorite pillows used our chenilles and herringbones. It's very visually striking to make pillow pairs, too, with the fabric used for the sides of one pillow making the top and bottom of the other, and vice-versa.

This isn't a pattern that'll solve all your problems, clothe your children, and end world hunger ... but it sure is a lot of fun, and people can't help but smile when they see the pillows. Easy enough for beginners, and yet not at all boring for the more advanced among us.

Can you tell we really enjoy this pattern?
